A man from Nunavut has died in a car crash on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton island, say RCMP.

In a news release, police say they were called to the collision in Port Hawkesbury, a small municipality on the southern tip of the island, at 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

There, they found a car that had left the road and landed in a ditch. 

Police say the 48-year-old driver was the single occupant of the car. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have not identified the man, and have not said which Nunavut community he is from.
